Gunmen attack workers of Gomoa Fetteh Salt Industry

A group of gunmen numbering about 10 are reported to have attacked workers of the Gomoa Fetteh Salt Industry Limited, a salt and real estate company in the Central Region.

Twelve of the victims are currently battling for their lives at the Kasoa Government Hospital.

Many workers are said to be terrified following the incident on Wednesday.

In a release dated October 13, 2022, and signed by the director of the company, Amos Appiah, he debunked accusations that the workers were land guards.

The letter indicated that the injured, many of whom are security guards and administrative staff of the company, were there to protect the property and the over 3,000 acres of land at the site.

A letter sighted by Adomonline.com shows that in view of the activities of land guards in the community and encroachment of lands, the management of the company, in July 2022, wrote to the Central East Police Regional Command, to assist with police officers to patrol the vast area.

They further notified the police that they were going to hire private security officers to complement the police effort at protecting the land.


Mr Amos Appiah also called on the National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah and the Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare to swoop the area and arrest all individuals involved in land guard activities.
